Stephen Curry has had a career with the Golden State Warriors that is entirely unique to him.
The Golden State Warriors are prepping for the 2019-20 NBA season. This year, the Dubs are looking to erase the doubt and solidify themselves as an all-time great dynast. A dynasty that was built on the back of none other than, Stephen Curry.
Curry has been the face of the franchise for nearly a decade now. The two-time MVP dragged the Dubs out of the turmoil they had been in and lifted them to greatness. Five trips to the NBA Finals and three championships later, the Warriors are still one of the league’s best teams.
Even in the face of numerous injuries and major losses in free agency, the Warriors remain a title favorite. This is largely due to the immense value Curry brings to the floor. Few players in the league have ever had the offensive impact that Curry currently has.
He is the perfect pace-and-space player. A speedy point guard with unlimited range and a high-IQ is the type of combination that has made Steph so deadly. When he gets going, there is simply no stopping him. There’s a reason he is the only 30+ point per game scorer to ever shoot 50/40/90 from the floor.
As Curry has risen to stardom, the next generation has attempted to replicate his success. From players such as Damian Lillard expanding his range to younger stars like Trae Young and even LaMelo Ball. Visit any local gym across the country and it wouldn’t be hard to find someone who Curry has influenced.
Even so, it’s difficult to image we will ever see another Stephen Curry. He is a master at shooting the ball and has dedicated countless hours to the game. His rapid growth as a superstar and ultimate impact on the game is something that won’t happen again.
Through the years, the number of truly unique players has been limited. Only legendary icons such as Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan and LeBron James hold the honor of being irreplicable. By the time his career is all said and done, Curry will be in this same group of names.
